What The Bible Really Said?
A well-meaning Christian stopped me on Yonge Street while I was on my way to the library.
“Do you know what The Bible really said?” she asked.
“Nothing,” I said. “The Bible can’t talk.”
She did not laugh and walked away.
How come God’s sense of humor did not make it into religion? He has such a great sense of humor, a tremendous sense of humor! Yet so many religious people take it all so seriously. Laughing in church, when I was a kid, meant you would go to Hell. Of course, not being able to laugh made me giggle all the more. I usually stopped giggling when my Sunday School teacher glared at me.
How do I know God has a great sense of humor? He created human beings.
If The Bible could talk, then it should say, “Live! Love! Laugh!”
